Key Advantages

Our one-stop recruitment solution removes the challenges, frustrations and delays caused by factors such as inefficient manual processes, high volumes of applications and lack of visibility in a competitive recruitment landscape.

Instead of sifting through emails, opening various attachments or communicating with individual candidates one at a time, Unit4 Recruitment offers you a central, online database from which you can automate all your essential recruitment tasks. Send bulk branded and personalised emails to your candidates. Share jobs on your social media channels at the touch of a button. Create customised application forms, screen candidates, search CVs and schedule interviews all from one sleek, intuitive and user-friendly system.

It reduces your costs

Unit4 Recruitment can have a measurable impact on your recruitment costs. Recruitment cost-mapping helps you to keep track of your spend, whilst a suite of customisable reports means you can assess the ROI of different sources and channels.

The reduced manual processes will free team members’ time for other more commercially valuable tasks. What’s more, by offering the tools to improve your direct sourcing ability, Unit4 Recruitment enables you to reduce your reliance on agencies.

It improves your employer branding

Stand out from your competitors with a professional careers site. Built to reflect every inch of your corporate brand and seamlessly integrated with your existing website, your careers site should communicate your company culture and convince candidates to apply for a role with you.

Improve your reputation as an employer who cares by easily acknowledging every application status with Unit4 Recruitment’s range of communication tools and templates.

Share your vacancies across social media channels and make use of Unit4 Recruitment’s exciting Facebook and LinkedIn apps to engage with candidates and widen the reach of your vacancies.

Encourage talent to apply from anywhere in the world and using any device with Unit4 Recruitment’s innovative mobile tools. Integrated with a range of screening and testing tools, engage candidates with flawlessly integrated video interviewing, or interactive psychometric assessments.

Creating and storing a talent pool will ensure you don’t miss out on talent for future opportunities, and a branded candidate portal means that candidates can take control of their application and view their progress.
